Project Assistant Position at Fondazione Giannino Bassetti

di Redazione FGB [1], 7 Febbraio 2020

Fondazione Giannino Bassetti (FGB)

Fondazione Giannino Bassetti (FGB) was founded in 1994 and has promoted responsibility in innovation within the technosciences, entrepreneurship and governance for 25 years, acting as a pioneer CSO in fostering the concept and the practice of RRI.

In 2004 FGB promoted the first Consensus Conference in Italy, aiming at regulating the usage of GMOs in Lombardy Region territory. The result of such activity was the change of the Lombardy statute on Innovation (article 10.3), stating the introduction of "proper procedures and tools to implement Responsible Innovation when deciding on techno-scientific innovation in Lombardy".

Since 2017 Bassetti Foundation coordinates the activities of the Lombardy Region Forum on Research and Innovation, introduced by Regional Law 29/2016, and composed of 10 highly qualified experts in the relationship between science and society. The aim of the Forum is to strengthen regional actions on open and responsible innovation at local and at international level, thanks to technology assessment, public consultations on research agenda setting, social innovation and open science initiatives and strategies.

FGB was third party, in charge of organizing and coordinating the advocacy and training event in Italy as well as contributing to communication and dissemination activities, in the EU FP7 RRI-Tools [2] project aimed at developing a set of digital resources to advocate, train, disseminate and implement RRI.

Moreover, FGB was in the consortium of SMART-Map [3] RoadMAPs to Societal Mobilisation for the Advancement of Responsible industrial Technologies (Horizon 2020, 2016-2018). The aim of the SMART-map project was to tackle the industrial and entrepreneurial environment in order to favour exchanges and mutual learning on RRI concepts between a wide range of societal actors, to co-produce and co- design RRI roadmaps (SMART Maps) in precision medicine, 3D printing in biomedicine and synthetic biology.

FGB is a renowned actor of RRI in Europe, participating in stakeholder events and sitting in several EU projects' Advisory Board and Forum such as in Super_MoRRI [4].
